Quick thoughts
- Great trigger (need to get used to it)
- Feels great...kick with a .38 special not bad at all
- 5 rounds goes real quick
- I need a lot of practice

I shot 50 rounds in the 30 minutes trying to take my time...The distance was 15 yards (maybe I should had started a bit closer?) I did "hit" the target at 15 yards but my groupings sucked. Keep in mind I was aiming for the center with each shot (which I did hit a few times). The front site was swapped I have a green optic not the original...The sites can't be adjusted. I thought my grip and stance was good....well see below and I would love your thoughts...

PS - I shot off 50 rounds with my Ruger P95 right after and kicked butt with that (still at 15 yards). I needed to do something for my deflated ego. I see a lot of range time in my future.

I start out at 7 ft and gradually move it out to 15 ft. Also like someone else said snap caps really help with trigger squeeze. I shoot my j frame once sometimes twice a month, but us snap caps a couple times a week.

Still good for first time at 15 ft.

I use High Noon holsters for all my IWB carries. Wife has her LCR in one. Great gun!! High noon has lots of options and price is right. https://www.highnoonholsters.com/

Yeah, more range time needed. Mine is every bit as accurate as my GP100; the sights are dead on too.

Probably more range time would help, maybe a laser sight would help, too. But for sure 3 times as much lead would help!

I don't regret the purchase though. When family comes to the house for the emergency I will need to arm them, and someone gets the .38, maybe someone not versed in firearms. At least with a revolver they will get off five shots. If I gave them a 9mm I am not sure they would even get one shot off.

The best synthetic holsters I've ever seen is Front Line but they are hard to find.
